Here's everything that's happening throughout this jam-packed week for UFC fans

Las Vegas plays host to three UFC shows over the coming days.

THIS WEEK WILL go down as the busiest in the history of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, with no fewer than three events taking place in Las Vegas.

Between UFC Fight Night 80, The Ultimate Fighter 22 Finale and UFC 194, some of MMA’s biggest names will be in action between Thursday and Saturday.

Aljamain Sterling, Sage Northcutt, Jim Miller, Paige VanZant, Gabriel Gonzaga, Joe Lauzon, Edson Barboza, Tony Ferguson, Chad Mendes, Frankie Edgar, Urijah Faber, Max Holloway, Gunnar Nelson, Demian Maia, Yoel Romero, ‘Jacare’ Souza, Luke Rockhold, Chris Weidman, Jose Aldo and, of course, Conor McGregor are just some of those who’ll be competing over the coming days.
